Structural Analysis of Rocks and Regions (SARR)
Florian Fusseis, The University of Edinburgh
SARR aims to reverse the theory-first/application-second approach of most common structural geology textbooks. It confronts students with lectures and practicals on deformed regions around the globe that, combined, ...

Using Field Observations and Field Experiences to Teach GeoscienceAn Illustrated Community Discussion
Karen Grove, San Francisco State University
The introductory level course teaches geology majors basic skills in the context of a field-based problem, the integrating theme for the semester, so that they can more rapidly achieve an advanced skill level in ...

Phillip G. Resor: Using GPS, Strain, and Earthquakes in Structural Geology at Wesleyan University
My course is one of several core courses that Earth and Environmental Science major students can choose from at Wesleyan. The course integrates field and laboratory exercises, quantitative analyses, and readings from the primary literature to teach students about rock deformation and its importance to a variety of societally relevant problems. I taught the GPS, Strain and Earthquakes module about midway through the course after students had been introduced to concepts of deformation, mapping and measurement of geologic structures and quantification of stress.

Structural geology
Howell Bosbyshell, West Chester University of Pennsylvania
Determination of the sequential development and the forces involved in the various structural features of the earth.

Structural Geology
Angela Moore, Guilford College
An introductory structural geology course that includes the study of stress and strain, rheology, qualitative aspects of brittle and ductile deformation processes, and descriptive analysis. Tectonics is also ...

Structural Geology
Jack Loveless, Smith College
Introductory structural geology

Structural Geology
Seth Kruckenberg, University of Wisconsin-Madison
The prime purpose of this course is to improve your understanding of the deformation of the Earth's lithosphere, which is the focus of the study of structural geology. In my view, a first course in structural ...

Structural Geology with Field Geology lab
Phil Resor, Wesleyan University
In this majors-level course students learn how to 1) collect data for structural and tectonic analyses, 2) synthesize and analyze these data to generate and test hypotheses, and 3) apply these structural and ...

Petrology and Plate Tectonics
Allen Glazner, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
This course is organized around the igneous and metamorphic processes that govern the rock cycle, all within the context of plate tectonics. Rather than addressing igneous and metamorphic rocks and processes as ...

Structural Geology and Tectonics
Jackie Langille, University of North Carolina at Asheville
Study of rock deformational processes and resulting structures in the Earth's crust with application to global and regional tectonics. Lab work and field trips emphasize the use of methods to assist in the ...

Structural Geology
Katherine Boggs, Mount Royal University
This is a typical introductory course to Structural Geology. Because the course is small, I'm able to interweave lecture and labs and also to take the group on a weekend field trip through the Canadian ...

Structural Geology
Dan Morgan, Vanderbilt University
This course addresses many topics about how rocks break and deform, for which I try to emphasize applications to earthquakes, hydraulic fracturing, hydrocarbon extraction, and landscape evolution.

Structural Geology and Tectonics
Steve Hurst, University of Illinois at Chicago
Junior -senior level course introduction to structural geology and tectonics

Structural Geology (EAS 425)
Kyle Fredrick, California University of Pennsylvania
Conventional Structural Geology course with a primary focus on recognizing and measuring structure. Considerable time is spent on graphical analysis of structures (3-point problems, stereonets, remote and field ...

Microstructure and Rock Rheology
Whitney Behr, The University of Texas at Austin
This course focuses on microphysical processes of deformation operative in the crust and upper mantle, with an emphasis on distinguishing these processes using microstructural analysis.
